U.S. distributor Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired North American rights to Jason Tippet and Elizabeth Mims’ debut feature documentary Only the Young (pictured).

The film premiered at this year’s True/False Film Festival and went on to win the award for Best U.S. Feature at the AFI-Discovery Channel SilverDocs Documentary Festival in June.

The doc tells the story of the children that inhabit a small desert town in Southern California, observing their day-to-day lives to show their friendships, first loves and heartbreak.

In a statement, the directors said: “Oscilloscope has such a well curated roster of films. We feel so honored to be a part of a company that has love and integrity for the types of movies they put out.”

Only the Young was produced by Derek Waters. The deal was negotiated by David Laub and Dan Berger of Oscilloscope with UTA Independent Film Group representing the filmmakers.
